Torroja Institute (E.Torroja)
Opened up in 1953, this building is currently the Eduardo Torroja Construction Science Institute. The Project was designed by the Architects Manuel Barbero and Gonzalo Echegaray, directed and supervised by the Civil Engineer Eduardo Torroja.
This building constitutes a milestone in the industrial and research architecture, and a perfect model of interdisciplinary collaboration between architecture and engineering.
One of the things that surprised me the most, was the furniture, designed specifically for the building by Manuel Barbero, and the perfect state of preservation.
